Four UK companies – including one recently supported by CENSIS – recently received Innovation Awards from the Institute of Physics (IOP).

Gas Sensing Solutions from GlasBuilt environmentgow won its award based on increasing innovation and market potential from its CO2 sensor.

This CO2 product monitors and measures CO2 levels in human health and environmental areas by introducing a low powered, fast and wireless CO2 gas sensor. Industries able to apply this innovation to include medical, horticultural, recreational and wider industries.

GSS has met an increasing health and safety need within building management and the built environment, monitoring CO2 levels in order to improve air quality. The device has generated more than £1 million profit and created dozens of jobs since it was commercially launched three years ago.  The IoP recognised the importance of commercial application within a physics environment.

GSS has benefitted from innovation research and development support from CENSIS, allowing them to progress their innovation ideas further with academic expertise from the University of the West of  Scotland and Glasgow Caledonian University.  Watch this space for more exciting innovations and news from Gas Sensing Solutions.
